Sponsor a Maiko shoot

I don’t quite know how, but I was suddenly and accidentally offered the opportunity to do a photo shoot with maiko. Maiko are not geishas, but are like geisha apprentices. I’ve been on the look out for just this opportunity ever since I arrived in Kyoto in March this year… in fact, for the last few years I’d been looking for the opportunity. Now I have it.

As you know, geishas and maiko are very expensive. I am looking for a sponsor to help. The shoot is scheduled for the 2nd June (a Sunday), and I’ll have a few hours with them. The photos I get will be used by me for my own company use and promotional activities. However, any sponsors will have exclusive commercial use of them. If I get more than one sponsor, each will get a proportionate share of unique photos. This is of course important for maintaining a unique visual and aesthetic for your use.

Importantly, the Rugby World Cup is hosted in Japan very soon, and Tokyo 2020 Olympics are coming up, so now is the time to get your visuals ready ahead of that. Contact me for more information.
